We went to lunch with my good friend Dave! He was wishing us a good trip north! I think I have lost count now how many trips on the Alaska Highway I have made…… Last year we drove up the Cassiar Highway and came back the Alaska. It was nice but we decided the high country on the Alaska Highway makes the trip more interesting. There are often caribou and big horn sheep that way.
We are planning for a busy time in the gold fields this 2014 season. It sounds like there will be a lot of action from the Gold Rush Show. I spoke with Todd Hoffman a few times last winter but he tries not to tell me anything that would hurt the surprises! I respect that idea and will not post anything I have learned from him or my friends in Dawson that could undermine the entertainment all of us get from the show!
Last mining season I met some of the miners from the Yukon Gold show. I worked with Darwin some….what a character he is!
I emailed with Tim Coles last week. He is mining my Upper Bonanza claims this year again. He has been working out there since the first of April! What hard working tough guy! He said he was going to do our first cleanup of the season yesterday. We will have gold waiting for us……nice!
